4th of July Fun

Heres a few pictures of our 4th of July fun down at the base.

We rode down to the Soldiers and Family Day July 4th stuff with some friends. It was really awesome they did a great job this year of including stuff for ALL ages. There were a lot of people there but it didn't seem crowded because they had the stuff put over a large area. We had a great time despite the fact that it was HOT as heck. We went down after lunch and stayed to watch the concerts (Boyz 2 Men and Montgomery Gentry) and the fireworks - which were GREAT. We did leave to eat dinner at Chili's and I have to say that was NOT a great experience with them. The mac n cheese that the kids ordered came out COLD like not cool but right out of the fridge cold and my mashed potatoes came out barely warm plus the waitress was a snot - she didn't get tipped very well. Oh well the super nice ladies selling the fried oreos (OMG if you haven't had these you need to!) totally made up for it - they were VERY nice ladies.

Zilla had never seen fireworks before and he didn't hate them but they were quite loud so he wasn't digging the noise but thought it was cool none the less. We even managed to avoid the traffic leaving so over all it was a great day! We made it home about 11:30 with Zilla STILL awake - this kid normally goes to bed at 8 (at the latest) so I couldn't believe that him and my friends 3 year old stayed awake that long! He did sleep in today until 8:10am so that was a plus for me! Okay I'm still tired from all that sun and fun so thats all your getting for now! LOL

We didnt get home til after midnight. We got stuck in traffic going out and then they led us out an unfamiliar gate. Thank GOD I used to live down there cause I found our way but still I was peeved that I couldnt go straight out to 144 because they had the road blocked off (it wasnt blocked when we went in)
